Responsible for test support for new product introductions (NPI) when introduced into manufacturing, legacy test equipment, continuation engineering product changes, production support, and equipment replacement and maintenance.
Implement and support cost-effective automated methods of testing and troubleshooting printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs). This test equipment consists of electrical, electronic, mechanical measurement and controls, mechanical fixtures and test software which are used in global manufacturing facilities to produce Rockwell Automation products. The Test Engineer will actively work with the global and local plant environments in collaboration with design teams to achieve optimum product and test equipment designs for manufacturability. Works on issues of moderate scope and complexity where analysis of situations or data requires review of relevant factors. Exercises judgment within defined procedures to determine appropriate action. May lead small special project teams within or external to the immediate group.
Develop and lead implementation of continuous improvement, error proofing, ergonomics, yield, and other lean manufacturing initiatives for test equipment and processes.
Implementation of common test practices across site and sharing of common practices and lessons learned with other manufacturing facilities and NPI development teams. Develop standardized work practices, documentation maintenance, and operator training for all test related processes.
Demonstrate consistent use of appropriate Lean Six Sigma tools for test equipment qualification, test system problem solving, and identification and implementation of continuous improvement opportunities.
Understand documentation on all aspects of the test solution.
